Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Haiden Palmer scored a career-high 32 points as No. 25 Gonzaga held on to defeat Loyola Marymount 91-82 in overtime Thursday for its seventh-straight win.

Loyola Marymount (5-14, 2-6 West Coast Conference) set up overtime when Deanna Johnson, who had a career-high 25 points, made three free throws with less than a second remaining.

Shelby Chezlek rebounded a missed free throw and scored to give Gonzaga (17-3, 7-1) a 73-72 lead with 30 seconds and Sunny Greinacher added two free throws at 3 seconds to make it a three-point game, setting up Johnson’s heroics.

With Palmer scoring 17 points and Lindsay Sherbert 12, Gonzaga opened a 44-31 lead at the half. But Loyola, which has lost 12 straight to the Bulldogs went on a 14-0 run to take a 57-53 lead with 8:30 to play.

Greinacher had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Gonzaga.
